Court Farm, Church Lane, Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, BS36 1SE

Winterbourne Medieval Barn was built in 1342, using the green timber construction methods. The original roof structure remains largely intact and is a fine example of raised-cruck construction. It is not a tithe barn, but is believed to be a unique survival of a very small number of medieval barns built by the lord of the manor for his own use. Visitors are invited to explore the barn and surrounding site (including St Michael's Church). Tours will be available. Children under 10 will be offered a quiz to do, either with their parents or on their own.

This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
